John McAlle has kindly stepped in to join Wolves Heroes’ David Instone at a Molineux-themed charity night next month.
The club’s sixth highest appearance-maker of all time immediately answered the call by agreeing to help entertain the audience at a q&a evening being promoted by the Mayor of Newport.
The Shropshire town is hosting the event on Wednesday, November 20, three nights before the club’s Premier League programme resumes at Bournemouth after the final international break of 2019.
More heavyweight Wanderers representation is promised at the Let’s Talk Wolves evening, from which local causes will be in line to benefit.
Tickets cost only £5 and are available either by emailing this website or contacting Newport Mayor Peter Scott on 07929-377549.
Admission on the evening, subject to there being any spaces remaining, will cost £6.
Organisers are planning one or two surprises and hope the considerable Wolves following in the town and the Telford area will swell numbers.
Feelers have gone out to two more former familiar Molineux faces and further details will be given as the date approaches.
McAlle represented the club in a League Cup final victory, a UEFA Cup final defeat, various semi-finals, a title-winning Second Division campaign and the rise to a final fourth place in the top flight in 1970-71.
On top of a total of 508 League and cup games that also included the winning of the Texaco Cup in 1971, the likeable Liverpudlian made a name for himself as an inside-forward when Wolves won a tournament in America in his teens for the second time in three summers.
Tickets for Let’s Talk Wolves, which is being held at the Navy Club in Belman’s Yard in the town centre, are also available from Newport’s Guild Hall.
